TRIGGER WARNINGS: suicide, outing
A couple of days ago, a woman game developer attempted suicide on a live video stream following internet harassment related to an Indiegogo campaign for her game. While she lay in the hospital, Destructoid writer Allistair Pinsof, in the interest of clarifying her Indiegogo “scam,” outed her as a transgender woman on his Twitter account.
Destructoid announced today that they’re docking Pinsof’s pay and putting him on a temporary leave of absence. But not firing him. I couldn’t help but remember when, less than a year ago, Destructoid writer Ryan Perez was fired for comparing you to a “booth babe.”
Pinsof put this woman’s life in danger in a real way - as she (according to his tweets) lay in a hospital bed following a suicide attempt. He still has a job. The man who called you a booth babe lost his.
you know what to do, tumblr

Also if some of my friends wonder why I’m nervous going into the industry, THIS is why.

“Does this rag smell like chloroform to you?”
No, it smells like misogyny.
So on why this “bad pickup line” and other rape jokes aren’t funny….
- Rape jokes perpetuate rape culture.
And what is rape culture? From here.
A rape culture is a complex of beliefs that…
did u really just call my friends future rapists? because honestly. that is so far out of line and just. i just can’t even believe what i am reading. yes, what they said might not have been the most politically correct but going from that to claiming that they will become rapists? i can’t even fathom that level of stupidity. i really can’t. it makes me not want to be a part of this community to be honest.
ALSO keep in mind that tyler and blain DID NOT EVEN MAKE THE CHLOROFORM JOKE. GET YOUR GODDAMN FACTS RIGHT BEFORE YOU START PEGGING PEOPLE AS FUTURE RACISTS.
HOLY FUCKING SHIT LERN2READING COMPREHENSION.
If you’re talking about Tyler and Blain, No I didn’t, I said they were perpetuating rape culture, which was the whole damn point of my post.
I also never claimed they *did* make the chloroform joke. I have no idea who made the original joke, and if I knew, they would be named there as well. I know that I already missed many of the people who made these sorts of comments, and I would like them to know that they’re not welcome in my community as long as they continue to make those comments, either.
If you’re talking about the statistics part at the end where I said it was likely that some quidditch players will be raped by other quidditch players, and you’re thinking of all your quidditch friends, THEN YES I AM AND I’M CALLING SOME OF MY FRIENDS RAPISTS TOO. Because the fact is… 6% of college-aged men have admitted to attempting rape. So… do you know 17 men college-aged and over? Yes? CONGRATULATIONS YOU ARE STATISTICALLY VERY LIKELY TO KNOW AT LEAST ONE RAPIST. There are over 17 men on my *team* so STATISTICALLY THERE IS AT LEAST ONE RAPIST ON MY TEAM. And if there are at least 17 men in your program… THEN CONGRATULATIONS YOUR PROGRAM LIKELY HAS AT LEAST ONE, TOO.
You know what’s fucking out of line? Raping people. You know what else is out of line? Making it seem okay to rape people.
Welcome to the world women fucking live in.
HOLY FUCKING SHIT LEARN TO SPELL.
bitch i was sexually assaulted when i was 10 years old. do not even fucking go there with me. i know the world women fucking live in. and i have been to hell and back so FUCK YOU.
and im sorry does this quote ring a bell?: “Most people who are raped will be raped by people like you
No seriously, exactly like you.”
please. tell me again how you did not insinuate that my friends are future rapists or the type of people who would rape someone.
BTW THANKS FOR REMINDING ME THAT IM A STATISTIC.
WOW WHAT HYPOCRITICAL WORDS YOU HAVE THERE
I used that phrasing hoping it would make people who think these jokes are okay realize the weight of their words. That they make these jokes in large groups of people, many of whom are likely rapists, and they go FORCING WOMEN TO HAVE SEX WITH YOU. IT’S SO FUNNY HAHA. LOLOL. SO HILARIOUS, RIGHT! And I think we can all agree that NO. NO IT’S NOT FUCKING FUNNY. RAPE IS NOT A JOKE. NO IT’S NOT SOMETHING YOU DO FOR KICKS. STAHP.
So YEAH, I insinuated that your friends are the type of people who would rape someone (which btw is not what you originally accused me of). BECAUSE THEY ARE. Because men get the idea that it’s okay to force someone to have sex with you if they “deserve” it. From these jokes. From rape culture. Studies like this and this illustrate rape culture in a way I NEVER can.
i’m going to make the last thing i say before i go to bed be this: I’m sorry you were sexually assaulted. That’s not something that should happen to anyone, let along a 10 year old. 1 in 6 is too large of a number, 1 in any is too large a number. I think statistics are valuable when talking about this sort of stuff… and so are personal stories. You are SO MUCH MORE than a statistic and you have a billion and two qualities a statistic can never reflect. A mere tumblr post can never, ever contain the stories, lives and values of every 1 in that 6, and I’m sorry about that. I’m sorry the world sucks and people rape others, and I’m going fight to make the world where no one thinks that’s okay, and no one trivializes experiences like yours and experiences like yours never even exist. And so as a means to that end, I’m going to continue to call out anything that makes rape seem even remotely okay.
(and if you’re wondering why you see two reblogs from me it’s because i thought tumblr ate this one BUT IT DIDN’T and it’s much more thorough so i deleted the other and omg i’m going to bed)
No offense ninita but being a victim doesn’t make you right to go apeshit over other people making completely valid points.

“I raped that test in math cla–” No.
“I raped that game earli–” Stop.
“The other team totally raped us tod–” Shut the fuck up.
Do you see what you’re doing?
YOU ARE MAKING RAPE SOUND LIKE A POSITIVE ACTION.
YOU ARE EQUATING SEXUAL VIOLENCE WITH ACHIEVEMENTS.

freedom of speech means that the government is not allowed to tell you to shut the fuck up. it doesn’t mean that i am not allowed to tell you to shut the fuck up.
